Hear all about Nebraska's unlimited possibilities.
I would like to take this time and thank you for awarding me the Milton G. Waldbaum Scholarship. I come from a family of 6 children. I am the second child and 3 of us are currently attending college. Getting scholarships really helps my mom out and takes some stress of of her for us to attend college. She has always preached to us that she wants us to attend college and succeed. I know that she struggles but does her best to help all of us out.Benjamin Henderson, Scholarship Recipient (0 comments)

The Campaign for Nebraska. Unlimited Possibilities.
What does it mean and why are we doing it?
The University of Nebraska Foundation is involved in a comprehensive fundraising campaign to fund university priorities such as student scholarships, faculty recruitment, research and program support. The campaign will conclude in 2014.
“This campaign is focused on opportunities for students, on expanding research in areas we are already renowned and on making a difference in Nebraska,” said James B. Milliken, president of the University of Nebraska. “The campaign will continue to build on the university’s tremendous momentum.”
That momentum includes steady enrollment increases and improvements that are keeping more of the state’s top scholars in Nebraska. As well as record numbers for external funding for research.
Monty Nielsen vividly remembers being taught by his mother, Neva Nielsen, in a one room rural school in Nebraska. He witnessed firsthand her passion and enthusiasm for teaching, and now he hopes to pass it on to students at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
